Vanderbilt researchers work to build a molecular Trojan horse to battle COVID-19

A pair of Vanderbilt University researchers are focusing on proteins that may lead to an inside track on battling COVID-19. Envelope proteins—small membrane proteins—have an important yet unknown role in the development and virulence of multiple coronaviruses, including SARS-CoV-2.    “We know this is an important protein because its removal impedes the virus’ ability to infect […]

Stanford researchers explore potential for kelp to relieve ocean acidification

Ethereal, swaying pillars of brown kelp along California’s coasts grow up through the water column, culminating in a dense surface canopy of thick fronds that provide homes and refuge for numerous marine creatures. There’s speculation that these giant algae may protect coastal ecosystems by helping alleviate acidification caused by too much atmospheric carbon being absorbed by […]
